FRANKLYN C. STEINBERG, III

Frank is the founder and principal of Steinberg Law, LLC. A Jersey boy born and bred, he focuses on employment litigation and counseling, business litigation,  and aviation law.

Following law school and a clerkship in the federal district court Frank spent his early career with large litigation firms.  Raised in an entrepreneurial family, and having seen firsthand that big business had more than enough attorneys, Frank decided to use his experience to help businesses and people by forming his own law firm.  He has been at it ever since.

Frank has litigated hundreds of complex matters before the State and Federal courts. His extensive trial experience spans a wide range of cases. He has tried both jury and non-jury cases and has argued appellate matters in the U.S. Court of Appeals, the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, and the Supreme Court of New Jersey. He frequently represents clients in mediation and arbitration proceedings.

Much of Frank’s practice is devoted to employment law. He represents employers, executives and individuals in employment disputes. Many of these matters are resolved through his successful negotiation of separation agreements.  He sees these disputes from both sides and thus has a  solid understanding of the how both sides work.

An avid airplane pilot for more than 40 years, Frank holds a commercial pilot’s certificate and loves the opportunity to combine business with pleasure by providing legal help to pilots and the aviation industry through his aviation law practice.  He is currently an officer of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association, an international bar association dedicated to aviation law and flight safety.

Frank is a 1974 magna cum laude graduate of Denison University. He received his law degree in 1977 from Seton Hall University Law School.  He is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of New Jersey (1977), the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (1977) and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (1978).

Frank has been a featured speaker for the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education and various professional groups.

He works actively for his community.  He has been a lector for his church for 25 years and has led many community groups, including the Somerset County Business Partnership and the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Coalition.

When he’s not practicing law you’ll find Frank paddling his kayak, flying his Piper Comanche, or golfing (the last usually with less than stellar results). A lifelong devotee of the Beach Boys and summer time resident of the Jersey Shore (the real one, not the TV show), he is still trying to get the hang of surfing and won’t quit until he does.
